Planning Cities with Compassion, For Connection Podcast – Session 11, hosted on

Host Sarah Knight discusses the role of connection and compassion in planning how we live and build, with Prof. Leela Viswanathan of the Department of Geography and Planning at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Leela shares her thoughts as to how many of our urban environments promote disconnection as well as environmental degradation. Her insights into how we can better work together to meet both the pressures of our changing climate, and those of our lonely hearts, can be applied not only to urban planning, but to all aspects of life.
